Avalanche warning for region Voss Wednesday 26.05.2021

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Be careful on steep slopes with soft and wet snow at higher altitudes, a skier can trigger avalanches here, or they can release when the temperature increases. At high altitudes, a persistent layer of facets are buried deep in the snowpack in isolated areas.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

Wet snow (slab avalanches)

on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

Advice

The bulletin is a planning tool and may differ from the actual situation. Always make your own evaluation. To be 100 % avalanche safe, avoid all avalanche terrain.

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflaten består av tung og myk snø etter flere dager uten gjenfrysing. Snødekket begynner å bli tynt og uten lagdeling i mange sørvendte heng, mens det fortsatt er en del snø og noe lagdeling i nordvendte heng. Snøgrensen ligger på 600-1000 moh og er lavest i skyggesider.

I det gamle snødekket lå det tidligere vedvarende svake lag. Disse antas nå å ha blitt omdannet til smelteformer mange steder, men i nordvendte heng kan det fortsatt finnes rester.
